CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The state of Wyoming is encouraging workers who recently have lost their jobs in the state’s energy industry to consider applying for vacant state positions including prison jobs with the state Department of Corrections.

Gov. Matt Mead says more than 2,400 state residents have lost jobs in the state’s energy industries since January. The state has established resource centers in Gillette and Douglas to help unemployed workers.

Mead says the corrections department has more than 160 vacant positions in Rawlins, Lusk, Torrington, Riverton and Newcastle.

Mead says the Wyoming Department of Transportation and other state agencies also have open positions that people also may apply for at the resource centers.
